Comfort and Support
We understand the importance of family and friends as you prepare to recover from your surgery in a private room. Here are a few ways we support your comfort and their involvement.
- The surgeon will discuss your case with you and your family.
- There is a couch in each patient room, ensuring friends and family can be comfortable.
- Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital have open visiting hours, 24 hour a day, seven days a week, so friends and family can be by your side throughout this process.
- You can order room service meals for yourself and a family member or friend.

While recovering in the hospital after surgery, our patients follow a standardized care plan that ensures coordinated nursing care, pain management and physical and occupational therapy that helps to progress activity. Below is an outline of the recovery plan and schedule for our knee or hip replacement patients:
Supporting Recovery and Encouraging Independence
Based on a personal assessment, a licensed and registered physical therapist will outline your individualized, recommended physical therapy plan. Your plan is intended to start you on the path toward independence and a healthy and speedy recovery. Learn more about inpatient and outpatient physcial therapy for our joint surgery patients.
Our case managers work closely with your surgeon to be sure you have the care you need when you are discharged from the hospital, whether you are discharged home with home health care or go to a rehabilitation center.
